African Orphas Project. As a result of the HIV/AIDs pandemic, average life expectancy of many villagers in South Africa is less than 40 years. This leaves hundreds of young orphans without a home, a caregiver, and at times, even food to eat. The mission of the African Orphans Project is to provide simple, decent homes for vulnerable children and their caregivers, and to expand the ability of the local Lutheran church to provide ongoing support to these families. Through the African Orphans Project partners and participants, we are able to provide the orphans of Shongweni with a church, homes, support, and a community center for training and education programs. www.hhafrica.com

September 11, 2017. Pitfalls of litigation by Eric Walberg 6:00 PM Mother Bunch Brewery, 825 N 7th St Phoenix, Arizona 85006. He will talk about the dangers of litigation for you as a individual and as business owner. You will learn about the less than obvious forces that drive parties into litigation. What might push the situation beyond the tipping point, where the litigation becomes about attorneys fees, as opposed to the underlying dispute between the parties. He will also talk about how to interact with legal counsel and the other stakeholders on your team to avoid the tipping point before a dispute arises and when a dispute becomes inevitable.
